  1. Want to explore an offshore oil rig ? Take a virtual tour!

    Have you ever been on an offshore rig ? Now is your chance to take a peek! Life offshore is a definite adventure. Offshore jobs are much different compared to working on land. Often you are offshore for two to four weeks at time (this is called a hitch), followed by weeks at home with your friends and family. Whether you are planning to work offshore, have business on the rig or want to explore, the training can be tedious and demanding. Generally, an extensive training is required to simply step foot on to an offshore rig – safety, rules, compliance and rigorous underwater training is just a start. OcuTech360, a leading provider of 360 visual technology products and services, has made it easy for you to visit an offshore oil rig without demonstrating your swimming prowess and ability to escape a completely submerged helicopter. Take a 360 degree tour of an offshore oil rig and oil derrick with the ease of using your mouse. Be sure to use your mouse to spin around to see all facets of the tour – and click on the red informational circles as they pop up to get a description of what you are seeing (click on the description to resume the tour ).
